CCDLA Background

The Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (CCDLA) is an organization of approximately three hundred lawyers who are dedicated to defending persons accused of criminal and motor vehicle offenses. Founded in 1988, CCDLA is the only statewide criminal defense lawyer’s organization in Connecticut. Our membership is from both the public and private sectors of the criminal defense bar. We are a not-for-profit organization that retains complete independence from outside funding sources by being supported solely by our members.
